Introducing Central New York’s newest and most exciting wine company, Lake Onondaga Vineyard. Founded by Jacques La Vin, Lake Onondaga Winery takes Central New York’s best springs, and combines 7 generations of French winemaking from the La Vin family on France’s Burgundy region. Because of the high aquifer that comes down from the Adirondack Mountains after Central New York’s extensive snowfalls, Lake Onondaga Winery signature wines have the clear, crisp taste that reflects the clean air and the natural environment known to Central New Yorkers.
Our Iroquois Room, pictured above , is where we introduce our new wines, and have served wine conisseurs, businessman, and everday folks. We also offer public winetasting twice a month, so you may see Alec Baldwin, NASCAR drive Tony Stewart, or Jim Boeheim sampling our fine wines.
Over the next year, we plan on using this blog to introduce some of our signature wines, such as Cicero Sparking Wine, a light, crisp wine inspired by France’s Champaign Region. Cicero Sparking Wine is available from Central New York’s supermarkets and wine stores, such as Wegman’s, Tops, Liquor Square, BJ’s, and Sam’s Club.
Keep an eye out for Cayuga Chablis (which was inspired by the La Vin family’s roots in the Burgundy Region of France), Camden Chardonnay (a white wine that is popular for those of us trying to watch our weight), and Seneca Sauvignon (a crisp, dry, and refreshing wine), and Sylvan Beach Bordeaux (a full-flavored, red wine that is ideal for Summer picnics), and Romulus Rose (a light pink wine we’re told is very popular with Buffalo wings.)
Onondaga Lake Winery, located along the shores of historic Onondaga Lake, was designed in France, built in 2011, and operated by Winemaster Jacques La Vin. Jaques, along with his wife Giselle, sons Robert and Jean-Paul, and daughters Marie and Francoise come from a 7 generation legacy of winemaking in France.
